Rest In Peace Mr. Stan

Mr. Stan Domereckyj

Passed away on Saturday, March 13, 2010 at the age of 86. Born July 10, 1923 in Drohobych, Ukraine. Proud veteran of the 1st Ukrainian Army Division "GALICIA" (WWII). Retired employee of American Motors (Chrysler) Canada and proud member of CAW Local 1285, Brampton. The family would like to extend their thanks and gratitude for the kindness and care provided by the staff of Ivan Franko Home. Thank you to Appleby Drive neighbours for your thoughtfulness and assistance to Stan. A special thanks to Dori and the Reinhart family for your concern and friendship to Stan over the years. Visitation for Stan's friends and co-workers will be held on Tuesday, March 16 from 7-9 pm at the Andrews Community Funeral Centre, 8190 Dixie Road, Brampton (North of Steeles) (905) 456-8190. Private family interment. Donation may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Tonight I went to pay my respects to Mr. Stan's family. It was important to do this. Some of the Appleby neighbours were there, and we reconnected. That, too, was important.

*Sleep well, Mr. Stan. We were lucky to be your neighbours on Appleby, and you grew a lovely vegetable garden. You will be missed.*
